|Luke and our newest Niece, Isabelle.|
We've been in UT for about a week and a half so far. We've got another week and a half to go. It's been a great break with family. The kids have loved it. We do this every summer. I think this has been the longest stay yet....and it'll probably be the last time it'll be this long! Total, we'll be gone for about 3 weeks!
We've been able to do lots of things so far:
-Girl Matinee to Brave
-Ice Cream Cones galore
-Seeing the birth of my newest nephew
-Seeing my newest niece
-Seeing my brother come home after a 2-year mission
-Watch the cousins become closer, play and making memories with family
That's just the tip. There are many more things in store. I love it here, I really do. But when you have your own small family, trying to adjust, feel comfortable and situated, it is more like a chore, not a vacation.
And it really helps you to realize how much you miss home and love where you live.
